Tropos' design team is committed to creating environments that inspire, welcome, and captivate. We shape land and water to craft spaces that are vibrant and functional, innovative and beautiful, comfortable and inviting.


Initial meeting

The design process is discussed and agreed with the client at the initial meeting. The first site visit allows to get a sense of the space and develop the client brief based on their specific needs and requirements.


Conceptual proposals

Based on the brief developed after the initial meeting, conceptual design proposals are prepared for discussion with the client. Conceptual proposals include a landscape plan and 3D sketches, along with the plant and material color boards.


Detailed proposals

Once the initial design has been agreed upon, it is then developed further by adding another layer of detail to the design. Drawings are developed to share with the landscape contractors and prepare a cost estimate.



The construction package is prepared during the Tender stage of the project.



Monitoring and managing the project during the construction phase.


Completion and Aftercare
